"Great place to stay for Food & Shopping"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

Great location, 1 block off the Mag Mile. Max of 10 minutes walk from anywhere we wanted to be. The concierge really made it worthwhile for us -- very attentive to questions and gave EXCELLENT recommendations for food (dinner & breakfast) -- even called ahead to make sure the experience was the best for us! Only (slight) downside was that we were there immediately before lobby construction was finished -- so slightly inconvenient, but definitely did not take away from the experience. We're going back there soon to continue exploring Chicago!

"Great location, gym, room, and restaurant"

This hotel is really good. There are iPads in the room to let you request any of a number of items from the front desk staff, housekeeping, etc. The gym was quite nice and had more equipment than hotels of similar size. When walking by the restaurant, the food looked delicious. The bed was comfortable and there was very good water pressure, which is something that is often overlooked, until a hotel has poor water pressure. The lobby is under construction, but when it is completed, it will only increase the experience.

The hotel is in a great location but even being 1 full block off of Michigan Ave, the noise that we heard was terrible. We could hear people talking, motorcycles driving and sirens blaring all night (and day) as though they were in our room.

Loved The James, everything exceeded expectations. Great location, amazing staff, luxurious room, free tea/coffee and big sofas available near reception until about 11am ... but most of all EVERYONE was exceptionally professional while still being totally friendly and helpful.

Came in for a four day stay without ever being to Chicago. Staff was very friendly and beds were comfortably. Hotel was clean even though it is going through a face lift. The concierge, Tim Samples, went above and beyond by making all of our tour plans for us. He has extensive knowledge of the Chicago area. Great job. We would stay here again and recommend it for others.
